Award-winning actress and SMS alumna Kathleen Turner returned to campus Monday to speak with students about her career and to announce the winners of the Kathleen Turner Performance Scholarship.

Senior theater and dance majors Matt Stokes and Wendy Jo Smith received the scholarships.

Turner said that her college experience gave her the opportunity to test her acting skills.

"This is where you get your guts," she said. "This is your time to try anything and everything."
